Scholars, are there actually non-Google alternatives to Google Scholar?

Hi new scholars!

Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:

โš•๏ธmedical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

๐Ÿš‘ uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

๐Ÿ”ฌ casually interested in and social determinants of health and ๐ŸŽฎ narrative-based games

๐ŸŽป plays viola

Such a huge part of what online learning hasn't replicated! Unpredictability, but also a group of colleagues who have your back

Love my current firm ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š (well most of it)

have reached the protective, if you shout at them I will fite stage

university facilities 

libraries being closed


me not owning a printer


"please send a hard copy" is suddenly a lot trickier than it used to be

HR: *sends link which doesn't work*

Me: this link doesn't work

HR: this is the link we send all staff.

clearly it isn't...

there is a joy in realising like 90% of the doctors on my last rotation were not white

and we all knew >1 language

so when we found out the hourly rates for medical translators, we all gave it some thought... ๐Ÿ˜‚

to all those who post cat pictures:

rest assured that I respond verbally in the proper manner, namely an exclamation of "kitty!", whether or not I do so online

thank you for your attention

unfair that typing "gm-" should autocomplete with the GMC website...!

Does anyone have any tips on masks ๐Ÿ˜ท and makeup ๐Ÿ’„ for trans women who need to conceal beard shadow etc?

At present there's a lot of times where I have to wear a mask, but I also take it off - the other day, I had to wear it in a seminar, but take it off for an outdoor coffee with a friend, and the concealer/foundation had rubbed off my top lip area in particular onto the inside of the mask ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Any tips for this not to happen? Laser is, as ever, pending (given lockdowns etc).


I have an (annoying) instinct of downplaying positive feedback, no matter who gives it

my clinical supervisor called me out on it today ๐Ÿ˜…

Even if I instinctively disbelieve it ("good knowledge? nah"), if I frame it as "this is what someone I trust has said about me", I am more inclined to accept it as true

Does anyone know of a DID competent therapist in Philly who takes UHC?

Does anyone have advice for finding a therapist who understands DID?

This year's IgNobel Prize has this very apt prize for #COVID19 . It's awarded to the leaders of the US, UK, India, etc. "for using the COVID-19 viral pandemic to teach the world that politicians can have a more immediate effect on life and death than scientists and doctors can."
